BirdCare Aotearoa is a dedicated wild bird rehabilitation facility responding to avian casualties, primarily, in the Auckland region and aiding with technical and educational support to all rehabilitation facilities and wildlife agencies in NZ. Avian patients are admitted because they are sick, orphaned or injured. Each bird is examined by a member of the clinical team, its care and rehabilitation planned to ensure professional, science-based rehabilitation and appropriate nutritional support to ensure its recovery. The goal is to release all healthy and fully recovered birds back to the wild.

Annual Returns are due within 6 months of a charity’s balance date (financial year-end), or a longer period if an extension has been granted.
The first annual return due on the 30/09/2009 will cover less than six months after the charity is registered. For this reason the charity should be granted an exemption to filling their first annual return under s41 (1), and the first annual return will be due by the 30/09/2010.
Here is a list of all the details changed by the charity, for example adding or removing officers, amending rules, changing balance dates or updating address details.
